Thailand: Protesters in Bangkok's Thammasat University demand elections

Protesters gathered at Thammasat University campus in Bangkok on Saturday, to rally against current Prime Minister of Thailand Prayut Chan-o-cha and demand a general election take place within the next seven days or else face a mass demo at the government seat. The protest follows a series of protests calling for elections within the last couple of years. Chan-o-cha, who is also a retired... Еще Royal Thai Army officer, had repeatedly expressed his intention that Thailand would have a democratic election, but has repeatedly postponed an election date. Recently, Chan-o-cha promised that general elections will take place no later than February of next year. In May 2014, Chan-o-cha led a coup d'etat, leaving the country under military rule for the 12th time in 82 years. Thailand has experienced more coups than any other country in contemporary history, since the Siamese Revolution of 1932, when over six centuries of absolute monarchy was replaced by the first Thai constitution.
